Wilson Mentor Program

Daniel Hausermann

One of Wilson’s school improvement goals is to increase student connectivity with staff members. As such, Wilson staff members have been asked to volunteer to be partnered with a student in need of a mentor. Students are given one staff member who they meet with regularly throughout the school year in hopes of building a strong relationship. The program sponsors monthly mentor events with fun activities for mentor partnerships to attend like a cooking competition, fun science experiments, watching the dress rehearsal of the play, and a petting zoo at the end of the year. The goal is to give students who are having a difficult time making connections at least one staff member that they feel they can go to in a time of need. This grant will support Mentor Program activities throughout the year.
